Here's some cool news that slipped under the radar yesterday. Amongst all the crazy happenings and product launches, it was easy to miss this one. Google updated the Google Search (Google Now) in the Google Play Store. The new update brings a number of cool features that were detailed in the video we posted yesterday. Here's a breakdown of the improvements:
  • Google Search is now faster for Android 4.1+ (Jelly Bean)
  • New Now cards: nearby attractions & photo spots, movies opening in theaters, concerts & more
  • New voice actions: launch apps, schedule meetings & check when your next appointment is
  • Google Now allows you to adjust or turn off individual Now cards within Settings
  • Google Now works with Gmail (English only)
  • Flights
  • Restaurant reservations

This is great stuff! Check it out.
